India is one of the largest and most dynamic economies in the world and has seen an uptick in foreign investments, especially in the manufacturing sector. Foreign investors and their Indian counterparts are increasingly looking at Singapore as a neutral hub for resolving their disputes, before forums such as the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC). This has led to Indian parties consistently being one of SIAC’s top foreign users in the past few years.
